Just caught this thread. This upcoming date in New York is kicking off year number 5 for Hollywood's Greatest Game Shows. It's been quite a journey that's for sure.

If this actually takes place..

A show last year was cancelled in NY when they sold less than 100 tickets.
Enjoy lots and lots of backstage TPIR photos and other fun stuff here. And yes, I did park in Syd Vinnedge's parking spot at CBS

A multi-hour drive to Staten Island on a Sunday night... aargh, if only it was Saturday on my birthday, would make it so much easier. What to do...

Staten Island this Sunday is a go. Groupon discount - https://www.groupon.com/deals/gl-hollywood-s-greatest-game-shows-hosted-by-bob-eubanks-st-george-theatre-2019

That date last year was cancelled because of the Nor'easter affecting ticket sales.

Had a friend that went. Here's what he said...

Quote
The audience lower level was full, but balcony was sparse. Contestants were chosen randomly by ticket or the co-hosts grabbed people from the audience. It was similar to the "The $250,000 Game Show Spectacular" that Eubanks hosted with Peter Marshall about a decade ago. The end game (Black or Red) was exactly the same.

According to my friend who was there, games played included The Newlywed Game, Dealer's Choice, Name That Tune and Card Sharks. The whole thing lasted about 90 minutes.

FWIW, based on the last report I read from this tour, it's possible a few of those titles don't correspond to their respective TV formats. They put up a graphic for Trivia Trap before to play a Q&A game that had nothing to do with the Bob Eubanks show.

I was there in December 2017 in Bethlehem, PA. Most of the games are Bob's own versions of the TV formats, I'm guessing because Bob doesn't own the rights to the shows. For instance, Card Sharks had four contestants get a row of cards on the screen of about 9 cards and each contestant goes through their entire row. The one that called the most correctly higher/lower won the game.

Seems like depending on the location of the show will determine how much money is given out. I saw from pictures online that the grand prize winner in Staten Island won $650. I believe the grand prize winner in Bethlehem won $2,500, plus every winner got a casino card to gamble equal to the amount of cash won.
